The DDHNM gets lost in th shadow from this gig because of the other breakouts. I think it's the jewel of the show quite frankly.

You'd think they'd been playing it for years.

It was 31 years ago today Jerry peeled my face and planted my feet so firmly on the bus, before they hit me with one 6 years later.

God bless the music that sustained me on this long STRANGE TRIP!

I still think I saw the string players on stage during the Terripin.

I agree that is the tune from that show. But the electric jolt that ran through the crowd on those first notes of DS...

Anyone remember the last time they paid $18.50 to see a concert????

gotta love GDTS. The ticketmaster price probably would have been over 30 bucks at the time.

I've told this tale, but it bears repeating (so beg my self-indulgence):

First week of college senior year no one had taken responsiblity to get the phone hooked up in our home because no one wanted to get stuck with responsiblity, long distance bill collecting, etc. Anyway, we're sitting around discussing stuff and the phone rings. I jump up and grab it and no one is there, but I have a dial tone. So I call the Dead ticket hotline (remember that) and found out Atlanta Fox tix were going on sale the next day (by your postmark postal money order). Get the info, hang up, and go to deal with same pronto. Send it off. Come home. No dial tone - phone is dead. And would be for a bit longer. Weeks later get our tix for 2 nights at the Fox. Turns out have front row dead center. Once in awhile....

here's my personal GDTS story for what it's worth. Tix go on sale for LA 1993. I'm having folks commit to the 3rd night. I tell them that since it's LA and a friday show I have a feeling marsalis will come down from the tonight show and sit in. They said to get a ticket on my own and they'll try their luck later with ticketmaster. I send in a request for a single and boom, front row. Ornette played the night before so I'm on pins and needles. 5 mins before the lights go down the techs come out with an additional mic. marsalis shows and I have front row between him and garcia. I interacted with branford all night. Weakest of the BM gigs but a great night for me.

that's cool. sometimes it works out.

told this story before, but saw branford just a few weeks before kenny kirkland died. kenny was late from dinner for the show so branford did a "Q and A" with the crowd while they were waiting. This was not that long after Jer died, so I asked him to comment on his time playing with the GD. There were some groans from the "hipper than thou" jazz fans, but Branford quickly put them in their place by talking about the boys were his favorite rock band because they were far closer to jazz than rock in the way they kept the space open and responded to one another and that each time he played with them it was a new and different experience on the same tunes. He said that they constantly challenged him and that Jer was one of the kindest, smartest, and most talented people he'd ever met. It was pretty sweet to have him tell that to a room of people, which I'd guess the great majority thought he did it for the cash or whatever. He clearly had/has a love for Jer.

$20 to see both Ryan Adams and Patti Smith at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz this past year (separate shows). But that is definitely not the norm, and it seems like they almost always get you for that much just to park these days. When did parking going from being part of the deal to an added extra cost? Anyway, Finster, gotta ask, is your name any relation/nod to Howard Finster?

Hey BD- I downloaded that Ryan Adams show from the Catalyst off of her last week. My first real listen of his stuff- I really enjoyed it. Sounded like a fun show. I just missed him here in St. Louis last weekend-damn.

Yea, that was the first electric show back after he injured his arm. Check out some of the recent shows, which seem to appear about as quickly as Phil shows, as they are really hitting their stride and introducing new material. Interesting Phil rehearsed 5 Ryan songs before hitting the road...

I listened to this for the first time a couple weeks ago. I post a lot of peoples show links for my "friends" I have on a mailing list for HS and college. I had for a request and got this from one of the more deadicated of the group. WOW. What a fine show, lots of little nuances I hadn't heard done before. Great choice.
